[REBOL] Script to download Quicktime trailers

From: fuka:fuxoft:cz at: 14-Jan-2003 14:50

I am a movie fan and I have exceptionally slow internet connection. Because of this, I often tried to download embedded Quicktime movie trailers (which can take several hours) only to find out that my computer crashed few minutes before the end of trailer. because the movies are embedded in the pages, Resume doesn't work and you have to start from the beginning... Because of this, I created a quick-and-dirty Rebol script to find URL of the Quicktime movie file itself. You can find the script here: For example, if you want to download the trailer on this page: Just enter this URL in my script and it will find the URL where the movie file is stored and from where it can be downloaded using your favourite downloader (stopping and resuming as you wish). P.S: For those that don't download these trailers very often: This is not a script that simply finds the ".MOV" link in the HTML page. It's a little bit more complicated. Just try to download the movie on the above page without this script... P.P.S: This is basically my first Rebol script and I'd like to hear any suggestions about how to improve it. -- Frantisek Fuka (yes, that IS my real name) (and it's pronounced "Fran-tjee-shek Foo-kah") ---------------------------------------------------- My E-mail: [fuka--fuxoft--cz] My Homepage: My ICQ: 2745855
